DR. PRASAD SRINIVASAN graduated from Baroda Medical School, India, where he also did his internship. He did his residency at Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in New York and fellowship in allergy and immunology at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago. He is board-certified in pediatrics and allergy and immunology.
Dr. Srinivasan is proud to work at Allergy Associates of Hartford. “All of us in our practice are ‘people people’...We listen to our patients. We do not come up with a diagnosis even as the patient is telling us their story. Hearing what the patients have to say is very critical. At the end of the evaluation, we discuss the various options for allergy and asthma treatments.” He and his colleagues call patients in the evenings and on weekends if they are concerned about their health or progress.
He is excited about new advances in allergy treatment and offers them once they are proven to be safe and effective. In the past two years peanut desensitization has become more and more common. It is effective and lifesaving. In time, other foods will be successfully desensitized as well.
He and his colleagues offer conventional immunotherapy in the form of allergy injections and, more recently, sublingual immunotherapy. With sublingual immunotherapy patients with allergies can self-medicate themselves at home with drops three times a day. This may not be as effective as conventional immunotherapy, but is an option. “This is an exciting frontier,” he says. “It’s convenient and practical. Patients can have fewer office visits.” In the future, allergy injections could be substituted with allergy tablets which would result in increasing immunity and reducing the allergenicity. Several products are in the pipeline and, hopefully, will be available sometime next year.
Dr. Srinivasan has been featured numerous times in the media and is serving his second term as Connecticut State Representative for House District 31 in Glastonbury.
